Twin Cities Business (TCB) has named Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis Director of Marketing Chris White a 2022 Notable Leader in Marketing. Just a year into his current role, White has already made an indelible impact on the Four Seasons brand and community in which he works.

With oversight of marketing, sales, communications and events, his imprint includes driving recruitment efforts, an on-time opening and early occupancy success. White also was in charge of the grand opening party, which raised more than USD 50,000 for The Link, YWCA and Children’s Cancer Research Fund, all part of the Hotel’s commitment to downtown restoration efforts, social justice programs and health and wellness initiatives.

“Chris embodies that ‘Star of the North’ spirit, shining bright, leading by action and example and inspiring and empowering others to rise to the occasion,” says Florian Riedel, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis. “He is a creative thinker, an innovator and a true game changer. We are incredibly fortunate to have him here in the Twin Cities.”

White joined Four Seasons Hotel Minneapolis in July 2021 with more than two decades of marketing, leadership and hospitality experience. His resume includes serving as Director of Sales and Marketing for the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis, earning Sales Leader of the Year at the St. Regis Princeville Resort, leading a large-scale suite renovation for Four Seasons Resort Hualalai and driving global growth at Mauna Lani, Auberge Resorts Collection.
